KOMPAS, eyewear for AlessiEyes
The Kompas Collection we created for AlessiEyes was inspired by the simplicity and brilliance of a compass. Like a compass, the collection harnesses the power of magnetic attraction and orientation, using a thin, powerful magnet embedded in each arm to create
a floating hinge. This allows you to unfold the frame one-handed with one simple gesture – with magnetic force opening and closing the arms almost as if they were magically doing it themselves.
This magnetic hinge also delivers long-term durability. The frame will never become loose over time, as the screws are merely pivot points, rather than a tightening device like all other glasses.
We made the collection with top-of-the-line materials such as lightweight and hypo-allergenic titanium and handmade acetate.
